Don't feel obliged to reply.
Well hopefully we'll get another 48 games to evaluate Booth on, but in my opinion the key point between Booth and Ballard is where we're paying Booth $4.2M to be a 2nd line forward Ballard is being payed the same to be a bottom pairing dmen.

I wouldn't go as far as saying Ballard isn't worth the money as on a different team he could easily be a top 4 guy, but for our team if you're being squeezed by the cap having such an expensive guy as your 5th dman is a luxury you can easily cut.

In my opinion if Edler signs and we're squeezed by the cap Ballard will likely go out of necessity. Booth will only join him if we get another half a season to watch him and he completely stinks it up.
